Nantes vs Nice: Preview & Prediction
This Saturday, the OGC Nice will shoot an important card in its race for the title, but also in its race to the Champions League. It is a perilous displacement for the Nice people!
In case of success in Nantes, the OGC Nice could take its ticket for the future Champions League, because the Lyonnais, their direct pursuer, will go Sunday night at the Parc des Princes to face the PSG.
The men of Lucien Favre will play very big this Saturday in La Beaujoire and especially, they will have to erase their last underperformance at home, it was in front of Caen (2-2).
It is true that OGC Nice has scored 2 goals, but the absence of Alassane Plea (11 goals) is cruelly felt. OGC Nice have not lost for the last 6 days in the French Ligue 1 Championship, but most importantly they have had good results away from their bases, a draw in Rennes or two successes in Lorient and Dijon, Formations that struggle to maintain them.
Since the beginning of 2017, there has been only one defeat outside in Ligue 1, it was on the lawn of AS Monaco (0-3), the leader of the Championship of La France.
The OGC Nice can logically hope to take points at La Beaujoire, but beware, the Canaries are under reconstruction and in full revival since the arrival of Sergio Conceiçao.
The Portuguese technician put the club back in the soft belly of the Ligue 1 and last week, the Nantes still managed to win in Montpellier, 3 goals to 2.

In his last 6 games, FC Nantes lost only once, it was on the field of AS Monaco (0-4). At home, the partners of Y. Bammou, suspended, remain on two good performances before Olympique Marseille (3-2) and FC Dijon (3-1).
In recent years, the OGC Nice has always been beaten in La Beaujoire, so favor a parity score between these two teams.
